There is a problem with your question, namely that such a triangle does not exist. An equilateral triangle with sides of length 10 would have a height of 5 * (root 3), which is approx 8.66 (not 7 as the question states). An equilateral triangle of side length 10 inches would have an area of 25*(root 3), which is approx. 43.3 inches2.
